Diva's Challenge #181, Water
Since the Diva had spent the previous 5 days in or near the water, she chose "Water" as the theme for this week's challenge. I played around with a few different ideas, and nothing worked till this one:
And last of all, since this is Joey's 22nd weekly challenge, she suggested tangling 2 of something. So I've tangled a tangleation of Unyun, only I achieved it using one and two halves:
Be sure and check out all 3 sites:
Tickled to Tangle, on Monday, when Adele Bruno posts entries. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday, when she offers the new ones.
The Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.And Made by Joey. This is a relatively new challenge site, but gaining new entries weekly.
Along with working on Zentangles, and trying to finish a knitting project (I'll post that when I do finish), I did something new in my metals class; although I did most of the work at home. When the new 2" square Bijou tiles were introduced, I decided I wanted a box to keep them in. My husband gave me a very nice wooden one which he had made some time ago, and I thought that would be good for the finished tiles; but I also wanted one to keep blank tiles handy. So I came up with this little copper box, trimmed with mini glass butterflies which I created at my torch:
Now that I've finished it, I think I need one for my full sized tiles, too.
